After the whole Hemogoblin's health is reduced to 0, the body splits into two pieces, the head and rear, which operate independently of one another and will both attack the player. Each piece has 65 base health and deals 12 base damage on contact. A captured Hemogoblin will still split in two when killed, and will not become a whole Hemogoblin again until healed via a Pet Healing Station.
Due to being one of the few splitting enemies in Starbound, the Hemogoblin has unusually complicated loot mechanics:
- The whole Hemogoblin does not drop anything when it splits into its two parts.
- The Hemogoblin Head drops only non-hunting loot, including a small chance for a Hemogoblin Figurine. Killing it with a hunting weapon will cause nothing to drop.
- The Hemogoblin Butt (yes, that's what it's called in the code) drops only hunting loot (59.9% chance for Raw Ribs, 40% chance for Sharpened Claw, 0.1% chance for Hemogoblin Figurine) - killing it with a non-hunting weapon will cause nothing to drop.
All parts of this monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Poison damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Electric damage. Additionally, they cannot be inflicted with Electrified.
A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the slowing electrified status effect when touched. This variant constantly releases electric arcs around itself when aggro'd. The split-off parts do too.
This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.

The monster's name is a play on the word "hemoglobin", a protein in red blood cells that gives them their red color.
